Still More on Arbitration Agreements
The highest court in the land, the United States Supreme Court, will soon issue an important decision about "arbitration agreements," those written contract provisions that essentially mandate that persons who are parties to a written contact waive their right to a day in court and, instead, agree to have their dispute heard through a private arbitrator (who is usually an industry insider and who makes a decision that cannot be appealed by either party - no matter how against the law that decision may be). See the article in the New York Times about this case. Stay tuned with us for any future announcements on this very important case.
